"Package has a Depends on libgeos-3.0.0 (>= 3.0.0) which cannot be
satisfied on *"

osm2pgsql build-depends on libgeos-dev, which at build time for it
was libgeos-3.0.0 but now the new package name is libgeos-3.1.0 and
the old name doesn't exist. So a rebuild in Sid should do it..

should libgeos-3.1.0 provides libgeos-3.0.0 or is the pkg name change
due to lack of backward compatibly?

Maintainer for osm2pgsql is listsed as DebianGIS so we may be able to do
something about it ... :)
